Foreign Languages -- A Must!
We in the Foreign Language Department believe that every student should be exposed to a foreign language and culture. We teach toward proficiency in every language. It is up to the student to take advantage of every opportunity to speak, read, write and use the language which he/she is studying in order to develop into a polyglot. We provide the opportunity; the student takes the initiative. We encourage students to immerse themselves in the culture and language through contact with native speakers and listening to foreign broadcasts on the radio and on TV. It is not enough for a student to learn a foreign language within a classroom setting. A successful language student must be conscientious and further practice the language at home through the completion of homework assignments, studying and practicing conversation whenever possible.
